Hi After the latest update, the address bar dissapears everytime I click on it to type in an address. It gets hidden behind previous addresses I visited. Completely unusable. I have no idea why it is so bad and how to fix, please help. Thanks

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hi, Yes that fixed it! For reference I went to about:config, searched for toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets and set preference to false to turn off the modification. Im assuming that after the latest update, it got turned on (to true) by default. Thank you very much!

Nice screenshot :/ . Try to enter about:config in the address bar and set ui.prefersReducedMotion = 1, then restart.

Try Firefox Troubleshoot Mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Troubleshoot Mode is a special diagnostic mode that temporarily turns off hardware acceleration, disables add-ons (extensions and themes) and resets some settings. See the Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode article for details.

If Firefox is open, you can restart in Firefox Troubleshoot Mode from the Help menu:

  • Click the menu button Fx57Menu, click Help, select Troubleshoot Mode and click Restart in the "Restart Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode?" dialog that opens.

When the Firefox Troubleshoot Mode window appears, select "Open".

It looks like you're using custom userChrome.css modifications. Try to remove it.
